Last but not the least!

With a very heavy heart I begin to attempt the last Tuesday prompt by Preeti Shenoy.........

1. If you had Rs.50,000 to just blow up (you have to spend it on YOURSELF. Giving to Charity or buying gifts for others not allowed), what would you spend it on and why?

I want to buy a house of my own and am currently saving for it - hence this amount will definitely be added to that.
2. Name three of your closest friends (not family or spouse) and say why you love them.
  • V  - I love you for being the wind beneath my wings!
  • H - I love you for holding my hand so firmly when every body else just seemed to be leaving it for some or the other reason.
  • N - I love you for simply there every time I have needed you; you truly make it seem "Distances don't matter."
3. Name three books which have profoundly affected you and which you would recommend to everyone to read.

[1]Chicken Soup Series - I have over 20 titles from this series and I still crave for more. As written in my earlier post, I live by them. For me they are like a friend. They are that shoulder I lean on in times of trouble. Every time I am looking for some serious answers I just have to pick one of these and I get all my answers.

[2] P.S : I Love You - The story is very beautiful and heart touching. It re-emphasizes on 2 things; firstly always value what you have before you lose it and secondly never lose a moment in letting someone know you care, you never know when that could be the last moment together.

[3] Life is what you make it - This book simply for the reason that it denotes the uncertainty of life. We tend to take so many things around us for granted that sometimes its too late by the time we realize their value.

4. If you know for certain that you can never ever fail, what would you attempt to do?

I could be cheating but I would attempt two things :

[1] Pursue a PhD which I always wanted to do.
[2] Write my book- which I seem to be procrastinating for the fear of the unknown.

5. What is THE ONE THING that you want very very badly?

A very tough one; I just cant seem to put my finger on one thing that I want very badly. On second thoughts I guess I want to remain ME all my life and not let anything change me at all.


  1. I loved your answer to the last was great knowing you..:)

  2. @ Rinku Moni Gogoi


    In today's world I feel just being ourselves is the biggest challenge we all have.

  3. Interesting answers.. good to know you better. :)
    I too, love the Chicken Soup series :D
    Good luck for all your dreams :)

  4. Being 'Me' is a fantastic and above all thing! Loved your candid and frank post. I really hope that someday soon I'll get to read a real moving book by you. I'm kinda already waiting for it! :)

  5. I love the chicken soup series too..I cry buckets whenever I read it :) And I come out a better person after finishing the book! And love your last answer :) So true..Came across your blog while I was reading Preeti Shenoy's blog!

    @ Rachit

    @ Natasha

    @ Tarang

    Thx..yup they certainly deserve this and much more :)

  8. Very good responses..especially the last one. It was good to know you. :)

  9. Nicely done!
    Yes, do remain "you" for all your life.
    There might come circumstances when you are forced to be different than what you are, take decisions you'd never take as you but despite all that -
    be yourself. Take the decisions as you, the world may or may not agree, don't care.
    Be true to yourself.


  10. @ Arti Honrao

    Thx so much your encouraging words :)

  11. Good to know you are saving to buy a house of your own...
    i am not a book worm...i never was...but yes i saw the movie PS:I love's an awesome movie...knowing you by your writing i believe the other two also would be a wroth read...
    i also have a dream of writing a book...and cannot tell you what i want to it's less than a month which would decide my fate...!!!

    Loved the statement...i want to be me all the know i loved it because it my dream...the world may change but please don't ever change me...

    i also have a quotation for this written few years back...
    " I am what i was-time won't change me ...!!!"

    1. Oh I love reading a lot! Well that house is a dream..lets see how far I am successful.

      Please don't tell me as even I am superstitious about us.All I can say is all the best. May all your dreams come true - AMEN <3

      Thanks..that is one thing which I would always want. I hope I am able to be just Me always :)

  12. aha !! nice to read your answers here again and getting to know you little little more.:P
    Interesting thoughts you have for each of your good friends. I guess they might also have the same thoughts attached to you. And would be glad to see you as theirs friend.
    "P.S.I love you" you have read before? I thought you finished right now after seeing your post on other blog :)

    PhD and Book that's the awesome dreams of yours. Doctor and author at the same time.

    Be-Never try to become :)

    1. I read P.S I Love you long back but reviewed it recently as it was requested by someone for some magazine!

      Yup, I have lovely thoughts for each of the friends I have in my will have to wait to know more about it.

      Thanks a ton!
